The Epic Games Store is currently hosting the Creator Appreciation Event, where showing love for your favourite Creator will net you a nice discount coupon.
The coupon amounts to $10 or the equivalent value in your currency. In order to claim yours, all you need to do is purchase any eligible game priced at $14.99 or above on the Epic Games Store and input your favourite Creator’s Tag at checkout.
After you complete your purchase, your Epic Coupon (as its officially known) will be added to your Epic account. The coupon will then be automatically applied next time you make a qualifying purchase on the Epic Games Store.
If you’re not sure what a Creator Tag is, how you can find one, or what a Creator is: no worries! We’ve got a handy explanation for you: Epic has a Support-A-Creator program which allows Creators to earn money from Fortnite and the Epic Games Store.
Creators are people like streamers, artists, cosplayers, musicians, and community builders. These people tend to have quite a social media presence. Each Creator is given their own special tag that people can put in at the Epic Games Store’s checkout in order to let the Creator receive 5% of revenue from a game’s sale.
If you don’t follow anyone who has a Creator Tag but don’t mind who you support and still want a coupon, you can find some Creator Tags in the replies to Epic’s Tweet here.
During the event, certain developers have upped the amount of revenue received. That means if you have a favourite Creator and you want them to receive a higher cut while you also get a game you’ll enjoy, you should consider buying one of the games below:
- Afterparty: gives 20% revenue during the event
- Red Ded Redemption 2: 20%
- Satisfactory: 20%
- Spellbreak: 20%
- Untitled Goose Game: 20%
- ABZU: 15%
- Control: 15%
- Last Day of June: 15%
- Operencia: The Stolen Sun: 15%
- Atomicrops: 10%
- Kingdom New Lands: 10%
- The Jackbox Games Collection: 10%
- ReadySet Heroes: 10%
- Surviving the Aftermath: 10%
All other eligible games will give Creators the usual 5% revenue during this time.
The Creator Appreciation Event runs from November 11th until November 18th. All coupons claimed during this time won’t expire until April 30th, 2020. There’s a limit of one coupon per account. For more information, check out Epic’s official blog post here.
If you’re also a fan of free games, you can currently get RUINER and Nuclear Throne for free on the Epic Games Store until November 14th. Happy gaming!
